Lake County to Be Featured in Jetsurfing Episode of ‘How to do Florida’ TV Series


The popular television series “How to Do Florida,” which highlights Florida destinations and outdoor activities, is once again featuring Lake County — this time in an upcoming jetsurfing episode.


The episode will premiere in the Orlando market on ABC’s Ch. 9 (WFTV) at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17. Host Chad Crawford, along with his wife Kristy, travel to Suncreek Brewery, Lake Louisa State Park and eventually end up at JetSurf Orlando in Clermont, where they learn to jetsurf on the calm waters of Sawgrass Lake.

“When people ask what my favorite part about hosting this series is, I say it’s when I hear how an episode inspired them to get outdoors and explore Florida; that’s the show’s mission,” Crawford said.


Over the past five years, “How to Do Florida,” has filmed at some of Lake County’s most treasured locales, from paddling along blueway trails on the Harris Chain of Lakes to exploring the scenic views while backpacking along the federally-designated Florida National Scenic Trail. They’ve also highlighted the underwater adventures at family favorite, Alexander Springs.
